NOW HIRING FOR THE 2022 SEASON

Laurel Glen Farm is looking for highly motivated, fast-paced individuals to work for the 2022 season (and potentially beyond!). Ideal candidates are interested in agriculture, sustainability, and supporting the local economy, and they’re dedicated to hard work.

Below is a list of open positions for the 2022 season. The candidate must apply on their own behalf through Google Forms: here. Please note that we will be collecting applications through April 10, 2022; if we decide to move forward with the hiring process, applicants would be contacted after that date.

Also note that we are seeking candidates whose availability allows them to commit to an entire season of work, including the potential to be scheduled on mornings and Saturdays. Laurel Glen Farm approves reasonable requests for time off, but expects reliable attendance for the duration of the entire season, from approximately May through November. We’re a team and look forward to adding more crew members!
